I have a 4 month old buckling born on my 10 acre property to a doe that I bought bred. He is presently very ill with the scours. I have done anything and everything I can think of for him. His sister died overnight with no symptoms about 5 weeks ago. She had a little diarrhea next to her body. Several days to a week later, approximately the beginning of June, I noticed 3 of my youngest goats including this little guy, starting to scour. They were all wormed with Safegard. I treated the water with tetracycline and gave Scourgard as directed. The other 2 cleared up quickly. This guy has had the scours for A MONTH! It had gotten to projectile clear liquid. I took a fecal sample to the vet 2 weeks ago and he checked it. He said he saw nothing to account for that watery diarrhea, a few parasitic cysts but nothing to that level. He suggested re-worming with cydectin and 5 days of Pencillin subQ, which we did. The watery diarrhea became opaque and thick enough to stick to testicles and legs but not thick enough to be called paste. I give 16-24 oz of electrolytes daily with probiotics added, he normally drinks it up, and 20 cc of kaolin-pectin with 15 cc of yogurt once daily, which I have to drench down. I see no improvement. An old cowboy rancher told me to give him flour dough balls. Said they used them for scouring cattle, 3-4 dough balls x 3-4 days to dry them right up. I did make up some marble sized balls and added salt to them he gobbled them right up yesterday and today.....no improvement. The cowboy also said that the electrolytes would CAUSE him to scour and that I should stop that. At this point I am so confused and feel like I have tried EVERYTHING and the little guy has lost a lot of weight. I don't know how long he can hold on. He does still forage in the field and has eaten some dry hay but not a lot. He nibbles at the grain which I know he should not have but he is just withering away. Today he ate no hay and no grain and he is looking pretty weak. Please, if any one has any ideas please let me know. Also how can I get some weight on, should I bother to stress him by washing him off....he is a mess. Oh, the diarrhea is a light yellowish brown color, more brown, not green, grey or yellow, no bubbles and smells but vet had no real answers.
